NFL picks, Week 13: Straight up and against the spread

New, comments

Predictions straight up and against the spread for Week 13 in the NFL.

Our Chiefs-Jets predictions are out.

A post shared by Arrowhead Pride (@arrowheadpride) on

Last week I went 12-4 on the straight up picks and 4-3 against the spread. It looks like we may be cooling off a bit on the picks against the spread after a few hot weeks.

Straight Up

Redskins @ Cowboys: Cowboys

Chiefs @ Jets: Chiefs

Patriots @ Bills: Patriots

Broncos @ Dolphins: Dolphins

49ers @ Bears: Bears

Lions @ Ravens: Ravens

Vikings @ Falcons: Vikings

Buccaneers @ Packers: Packers

Texans @ Titans: Titans

Colts @ Jaguars: Jaguars

Browns @ Chargers: Chargers

Rams @ Cardinals: Rams

Giants @ Raiders: Raiders

Panthers @ Saints: Saints

Eagles @ Seahawks: Eagles

Steelers @ Bengals: Steelers

I’m feeling a bit of an upset in Seattle, but I stuck with my formula and took the Eagles. I don’t make picks with my gut, but if I did I would pick the Seahawks over the Eagles.

Against the Spread

This will be updated as the lines change, up until I make my bets. Remember, if you are planning on making money off of these, don’t. I do this for fun, not to feed my wife and kids.

When betting against the spread I pick what I think the spread to each game should be. Then if my spread is two or more points away from the actual spread, I place a bet on the team my spread favors.

Redskins (-1.5) @ Cowboys: Cowboys
My spread: Cowboys (-3)

49ers @ Bears (-3): Bears
My spread: Bears (-8)

Broncos @ Dolphins (EVEN): Dolphins
My spread: Dolphins (-5)

Vikings @ Falcons (-3): Vikings
My spread: Vikings (-3)

Colts @ Jaguars (-9.5): Jaguars
My spread: Jaguars (-18)

Texans @ Titans: Texans
My spread: Texans (EVEN)

Panthers @ Saints (-4.5): Saints
My spread: Saints (-8)

Rams (-7) @ Cardinals: Rams
My spread: Rams (-13)

This is a weird week. Normally my spreads aren’t that far away from Vegas’ spreads. Typically when this type of thing happens my bets go to crap, so I guess we’ll see if that trend continues....
